a detail that some in congress said the administration doesn't make clear in public as part of the republicans' website launch. on oversight and government reform, sent is this letter to the obama administration demanding answers. it reads in part, we believe that the political decision to mask the sticker shock of obama care to the american people prevented contractors from using universally accepted best practices, in the development and rollout of this massive federal government i.t. project. it's easy to see why chaos would likely ensue. >> affordable care act's website which now totals about $600 million probably costs twice as much and it's not performing as it should if best practices had been delivered. >> reporter: the white house says the republicans are twisting the facts. however the administration has made changes in the website in the past two days that now allow consumers to type in their county and state at estimates price quotes, as well as
